The centrifuge first stopped being able to 'Fast Cool' last week, and it displayed a temperature of 40C. I took out the rotor, cleaned off the ice build-up and rotor itself, and told the lab to let the centrifuge slowly cool. It eventually got down to cold (with an incorrect temp display).
This week, it no longer refrigerates at all. Turning it on results in an error 18 quickly, no matter the temperature setting.
I inherited this 5415R, so the warrenty status is unknown. We don't have a service contract on it.
I welcome any suggestions to rescue this beloved member of the lab! Reply to laurathelabwizard RE: EPPENDORF - 5415R
